Best Beers tried in 2017
New Year, new you, girl! But honestly, more important than your self improvement, new brews! Before diving into 2018, I only felt it was right to pay homage to the beers enjoyed for the first time in 2017. I decided to shake things up and this list goes in no particular order, but some beers do have special awards.
Dr. Tooth & The Electric Mayhem Edmund's Oast
This beer wins weirdest beer with the coolest name award. I didn't think I would like this dill pickle beer, but it has become one of my absolute favorites.
*Weirdest Delicious Beer* *Coolest Name*
Grapefruit IPA Ghost Fish Brewing
I'm sucker for fruity IPAs. This was my first beer back in civilization and was so welcome! Perfect for summer sipping.
First Taste: Olympic Peninsula
*Favorite Summer IPA*
This was our last stop of the day during my friend's bach party! I don't remember any of the names, but it was an awesome place to hang out and the beers were delicious.
*Best Brewery to Hang Out and Binge Eat Mac n Cheese*
Birra Ravello with Limoncello Birra Ravello
Light and refreshing on a scorching day. *Best Brew with a View*
Money Pale Ale
This was the only craft beer I was able to find in Malaysia. Pairs well with: too much pizza.
*Hardest Beer to Find*
Flesh & Blood IPA Dogfish Head Another awesome beer from Dogfish that falls under my favorite fruity IPA category.
*Best IPA to drink if you don't have access to Deschute's Fresh Squeezed or Ballast Point Grapefruit*
Avatar Jasmine IPA Elysian *IPA with the Most Floral Aftertaste*
BRUNO RIBADI PILSNER
First Taste: Marsala, Italy
*I Don't Remember Drinking This, But I Love the Label and Probably Took a Picture Because I Loved it*
I did not rank this beer highly, but this wins *most special place we drank a beer* because we were overlooking a valley in my great-grandparent's hometown of Alessandria Della Rocca, Sicily.
